Family & Friends Should Butt Out (In My Opinion)
I just heard a story today about a young newly married couple who are already having issues in their marriage. He made three mistakes in one day. First, he yelled at his wife in front of his family. You should never do that. Keep your issues private between husband and wife behind closed doors. Second, he aired his marriage problems on Facebook allowing his family to get involved with their opinions, of course, they sided with him. His wife saw the comments further alienating her to him and his family. Third, when she walked out the door after he yelled at her, he didn't go after her. He should have gone after her to at least talk to her, it was an opportunity for him to discuss their problems in private without his nosy family butting in with their two cents. Apparently, he's not ready to cut the umbilical cord and stand on his own like a real man.
